It is the ground-breaking, Norwegian design-duet Anderssen & Voll, who is behind the curved lines in the new sofa BOW from Erik Jørgensen.
With its surprisingly curved design and invert lines BOW brakes with the common perception of sofa looks. Anderssen & Voll attempt through the design to apply the comfortable and casual shape, known from the hammock to a sitting place. A kind of berth suspended between 4 columns, symbolized by the 4 slim legs and the upwards pointing corners.
BOW is constructed, foamed and upholstered according to traditional craftman techniques at Erik Jørgensen Møbelfabrik AS in Svendborg. And with its tidy design BOW appears incredibly simple. “But the cover deceives”, Torbjørn Anderssen reports.
It was not complicated at all to create the design when made in Styrofoam, but to convert it into an actual sofa in foam and covers was a demanding challenge. Through these details BOW is a sofa, that really characterizes the fine craftsmanship from Erik Jørgensen AS, the Norwegian designer states.
BOW has with a sure touch of expression already gained acceptance several places, a.o. on the Danish national broadcasting channel where BOW forms the setting during the interviews.
